Perfect Dark

After what feels like an eternity, The Inititiative finally revealed its first project and it’s none other than the long-rumoured new entry in the  Perfect Dark series. Very few details were shared, but it got a tasty announcement trailer. Check it out below:

Back 4 Blood

The new multiplayer game from Left 4 Dead and Evolve developer Turtle Rock Studios, Back 4 Blood is essentially a new Left4Dead title with a different name. The studio showed off a gameplay trailer showing off what to expect from the game. While it doesn’t look like anything new by any stretch, it certainly looks like it’ll be a ton of fun with mates. Coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X & S, and PC on June 22, 2021. Check out the trailer below:

Hood: Outlaws & Legends

Upcoming medieval PvPvE multiplayer game from Focus Home Interactive and Sumo Digital Hood: Outlaws & Legends was given the gameplay trailer and release date treatment. Scheduled to hit PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X & S, and PC on May 10 (pre-ordering will give you access on May 7), Hood looks like a good time if you can get a good crew together.

Cyberpunk 2077 / Forza Horizon 4

With the world going mad for Cyberpunk 2077, why not try and get it in anything and everything possible? CD Projekt Red and Microsoft have come to an agreement that will see Cyberpunk’s 2058 Quadra Turbo-R-V-Tech be available for free in Forza Horizon 4 as of now.

ARVE Error: Mode: lazyload not available (ARVE Pro not active?), switching to normal mode

Set in a prison colony on Jupiter’s dead moon Callisto, The Callisto Protocol is a third-person, single-player survival horror game that is aiming to be the “scariest game ever”. It certainly looks like it could deliver the goods thanks to its intriguing trailer. Slated to hit consoles and PC in 2022.

Warhammer 4K: Darktide

The newest Warhammer video game from Fatshark, developer of the Warhammer: Vermintide games, is Warhammer 4K: Darktide, a first-person action spin on the IP. The gameplay trailer gave Warhammer fans a glimpse at what to expect from the game, and for someone who has never gotten into Warhammer, I got to say the game does look kind of cool. Warhammer 40K: Darktidewill be available on PC and Xbox Series X & S in 2021.

ARVE Error: Mode: lazyload not available (ARVE Pro not active?), switching to normal mode

Open Roads

A gorgeous looking game from Fullbright (of Gone Home and Tacoma fame) about the tale of mother and daughter who seek to uncover lost family secrets – it has Kieron Verbrugge written all over it. Has a hint of What Remains of Edith Finch about it, which if it’s anything like that will be a corker of a time. Announced for consoles and PC.

Disco Elysium: The Final Cut

One of 2019’s biggest hits, Disco Elysium was previously only available on PC and Mac, with the promise of a console port to come at a later date. The result of that promise is Disco Elysium: The Final Cut, which will feature full voice acting, improved playability, new political vision quests and more. It will be a free upgrade for current owners of the game on PC, while the game will launch on March 21, 2021 on PS4 and PS5, as well as Google Stadia. An Xbox Series X & S and Nintendo Switch release will occur during the Winter 2021 window.

Dragon Age 4

One of the most anticipated reveals of the event, Dragon Age 4, got a new cinematic teaser trailer that gave fans a brief insight into the new project’s direction. Narrated by Dragon Age 2‘s Varric Tethras, he says that “It’s time for a new hero,” insinuating that players will take control of a new protagonist in DA4. No information on when players can expect the game was given, but given the recent high-profile departures at BioWare it wouldn’t be surprising if it was a ways off.

Ark 2

Rightio, this was a strange one. First we get Vinny D himself in full tribal getup fighting some monstrous fellas before a huge dinosaur crashes the party and starts eating people all over the shop. Cut to a cave full of futuristic technology and it becomes clear that we have a sequel to Ark on our hands. With big Vin Diesel involved it has to be a winner.

An Ark Animated Series was also announced with heaps of big names involved, so look forward to that.

One of the bigger things of note, however, was the inclusion of voice acting in the game for its storytelling. Monster Hunter Rise releases exclusively for the Nintendo Switch on March 26, 2020.
